Swedish furniture company IKEA has become well known for its modern furniture that is inexpensively priced, attractive, environmentally conscious, and ready to assemble. Today it is the world’s largest furniture retailer and operates nearly 350 stores around the world. The furniture giant is now joining forces with modern design furniture pioneer and lighting designer Tom Dixon in a new collaborative project tentatively scheduled to launch in August 2017.

Per IKEA, the collaboration will “challenge” the conventional way of producing furniture, with the announcement hinting that the eventual collection will result in a revolution of small space living. Appropriately enough, the announcement was made in Älmhult, Sweden, also known as the birthplace of IKEA.

Tom Dixon is a British designer who made a name for himself when he played a role in the copper revival thanks to his innovative pendant lights as well as his design of the iconic ‘S’ chair for Italian company Cappellini. Today he is the Creative Director of his own brand specializing in furniture, accessories, and lighting and his work has been featured in museums around the world including New York’s Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.

This update is provided by CA Modern Home, offering an extensive selection of modern home furniture by respected brands and designers like those under the Herman Miller brand, including Charles & Ray Eames.  Call us at 1-800-605-1859 for any sales inquiries or more information on furniture by Eames, George Nelson, and the many other iconic designers.
